McCain Criticizes Obama Over Libya Operation

June 1, 2011 by  

McCain criticizes Obama over Libya operationSenator John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Sunday slammed President Barack Obama for his handling of the nation’s military strategy in Libya.

During an appearance on FOX News Sunday, McCain said Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi would have already been removed from power if the United States had remained in control of the operation. Instead, the NATO-led mission is failing to protect freedom-seeking civilians in the embattled nation.

McCain, who was Obama’s opponent in the 2008 election, blasted the Commander in Chief for his slow reaction to the civil war in Libya.

“As he is gradually changing, people are dying on the ground in Libya. And they wouldn’t have to if we were using all of U.S. airpower and the abilities and the unique capabilities that the United States military has,” McCain told the news source. “And, unfortunately, we are not.”

Meanwhile, Obama’s request for legislation backing U.S. involvement in Libya has been ignored by the House of Representatives. According to The Hill, aides from both political parties said there are no plans to bring a resolution to the chamber floor.

Last week, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) said that the Libyan mission would be addressed via amendments to the defense authorization bill. However, a bipartisan group of Senators, including McCain, have signed on to a resolution supporting the military efforts in North Africa.

    To guess, that Libyan airhead’s days are numbered. That being said, McHorse’s Rump McCain didn’t exactly represent himself as a functional icon of integrity in dissing Herr Obummer.
    Is McFence-Sitter stumping for votes? In that matter, he comes across more like Herr Obummer, who may or may not realize that he won the election, and it’s far too late to play the part when he PROMISED America that he’d ‘hit the ground running.’
    If McBoob wants a challenge, he should demand that the Senate do its job (for a distinct change), put the current Poser-in-Chief in his place and remind him every day that he’s in over his Haavid-trained head.
    For now, it’s an issue of one poll-watcher trying to slam another poll-watcher (and/or the pot calling the kettle black). Leadership, my aching asterisk.

    • EddieW

      McCain is just another Obummer!!! I refused to vote, because voting for the lessor evil became almost impossible, because they were equally evil!! Perhaps that is the result of voting for the lessor!!
      Congress knows Obozo, our Liar in Chief is not eligible for the office, the “supreme” Court knows he is ineligible, therefore refuses to even hear the case!!! A bunch of traitors to our country!! They just passed the “patriot” act (Orwellian double speak) again to further erode our freedoms, and help bring in the Nazi Police State, and think not that it isn’t coming!!! watch the news daily!!

      • 45caliber

        I agree. The only reason I voted for McCain was because I believed Oblama was worse. And I haven’t changed my mind since.

        • http://?? Joe H.

          45caliber,
          There has been NO REASON to change your mind!!!

  • Robin from Arcadia, IN

    Our country would only have been slightly better off if McCain had won the election. I certainly hope that the GOP gets their act together and can come up with a more viable candidate in 2012.

    • Bruce D.

      McCain cannot wait to give as much money as possible to all these Muslim countries. With McCain we would not have had Obamacare but he likes giving away money to foreign countries. It is just awful that he and Harry Reid managed to pull out an election victory last year.

      • Wayne937

        I know, McCan is almost as bad as Obummer, but not quite. At least McCain served his country…Obummer did not serve.

    • freddo56

      Herman Cain….Remember the name…A true American…Check out his website. the man is for real and I personally see great things happening if we were to nominate him for President, but that’s just what I see. Check him out for yourself.

    • Carlucci

      You must be kidding. McCain is the old, white version of Ovomit. Just another meat puppet to do the bidding of the PTB.

    • http://?? Joe H.

      Robin,
      Actually we might have been a lot worse off. McCain would have done the same things as Nobummer, but at a slower pace and maybe not half the number of people would have woken up to the BS that is happening!! I have never talked to so many people that are worried and even scared about what is happening to our country! More and MORE people are waking up and focusing on the problems that Nobummer is causing this country!

    We dont need to be in libya we have enough problems of our own.

    • RivahMitch

      Yep! …. and when the new Caliphate forms across north Africa and on into the middle east and Pakistan, we can all thank John and the Kenyan Marxist for helping it along… OTOH, this is the same John McLame who told us that Obama “is an honorable man” and that “you shouldn’t be afraid of him” (speaking again of OBEY ME) during his putative campaign to be the Big Kahuna.

      McCain personifies what’s wrong with Washington. He values collegiality over principal and worries about being disagreeable to those seeking to destroy our way of life.

  • BigBadJohn

    “As he is gradually changing, people are dying on the ground in Libya. And they wouldn’t have to if we were using all of U.S. airpower and the abilities and the unique capabilities that the United States military has,” McCain told the news source. “And, unfortunately, we are not.”

    Does anyone else see the irony here? Who controls the house? Just exactly what is McScrew complaining about?

    • wandamurline

      The President DID NOT have the authority under the Constitution to bomb Libya because it was not a direct threat to the USA. Without congressional approval to do so, he committed an impeachable offense, but like everything else this man does, no one is going to step up to the plate and call his hand. God help the US to make it to November, 2012, where the people can step up to the plate and say we do not agree with Obama and he has to go. Go green in 2012, recylce Washington politicians.

      • BigBadJohn

        I agree ALL president should get congressional approval. However, presidents from BOTH parties have been abusing this since Truman.
        So your argument for impeachment holds no water.

        • freddo56

          How about being a FRAUD? That’s what Obama is….He has to hide the truth about who he is to carry on his “programmed agenda” to destroy our country. Muslim or not, the dude is nothing but EVIL. Call me racist?, I don’t think so…I don’t give a rat’s ass what color the person is, actually I hesitate to call him a person….It’s nothing but EVIL, and is bent on our destruction as a nation. IMPEACH THE POSER!Now

        • freddo56

          So what’s your arguement, John? Just because other presidents did it that it’s OK to keep on doing it? What a load of crap! Impeach the bastard before it’s too late…I’m not clarvoyant, but I see really bad things on the horizon, if we don’t stop this imposter. Mark my words!!!And if I am wrong, I’m man enough to admit it, and learn from it, unlike the idiot that currently occupies the White House. he is bent on destroying our country, and you can take that to the bank…Oh wait….He controls the banks…sorry…I am not waiting like a deer in the headlights, I am taking action to prepare for the worst. If it doesn’t happen, then all the better for EVERYONE. Maybe, you should consider changing your handle to “little subsurvient johnny”, when the —- hits the fan….IMPEACH THIS IMPOSTER…

    • Wayne937

      BigBadJohn, being the big policeman of the world is bankrupting this country. Do you want to continue with this? Let some of the other countries take the lead now that we are having to borrow money from China to keep our own country. We have had around 30,000 troops in South Korea for over 50 years, around 50,000 troops in Germany since world war 2. This is costing the U.S. billions of dollars a year. We are one of the countries that give the most in aid. Tell me on what basis your making the statements your making. I have a logical mind with a lot of common sense, but you are losing me.

      • BigBadJohn

        “being the big policeman of the world is bankrupting this country. Do you want to continue with this?”

        ABSOLUTELY NOT!!!! The two main problems I had with Bush were the two wars he started as the worlds police force, and never getting OBL. on top of that the shear fact that both wars were UNFUNDED! It may have made Bush’s deficit look not-so-bad but it still increased the national debt!

        We need a balanced budget amendment! If our government wants to spend more than they take in, then they should be forced to raise taxes or cut spending elsewhere. Would you have supported Bush’s two wars if your income tax went up by 15 – 25% after one year to pay for them?

        • Wayne937

          BigBadJohn, I will have to agree with you to some extent. However, Obummer is doing the exact same thing as Bush, and now he is in Libya. I would say there are not too much different between them except Obummer has spent more money in 2 years than Bush did in 8 years. I have the facts to back this up. Obviously you did not when you read my other post aand you could not get beyond #4. See this website, and you will see who spent the most money. Keep in mind that Bush was a president for 8 years. Obummmer has only been in a little over 2 years. http://washingtonexaminer.com/politics/2009/02/obamas-trillions-dwarf-bushs-dangerous-spending

        • http://?? Joe H.

          BigBJ,
          I didn’t like much that Bush did, myself, but he DID go to congress for approval to go to Iraq AND Afghanistan! Nobummer thinks he is above all that and went bulling into Bombing LIBYA!!!! He REEKS!!!

        • Jazzabelle

          Y’all are squabbling. It doesn’t matter who spent more or who had more time. The point is, WE SHOULDN’T BE IN *ANY* OF THESE WARS AT ALL!!!

    McCain is only helping his buddy Obama gain more money and military forces to bring all the small mideastern countrys under one government run by the musslem brotherhood.Then the entire middle east will go after Isreal.

    • wandamurline

      If you are a Christian and read the Bible, this has been prophesized. Israel will be attacked and hurt badly, before God interceeds … and when he does, all that attacked them will be taken out, even the ones in this country, i.e. Obama, will be killed for their part in the attack of Israel. Something to think about.

      • Wyrdwolf

        Well if you are talking about the Cristian end times then Obama will get elected again in 2012 but will only make it to 2015. As far as the middle east is concerned everybody is saying that theirs is the right god while others are manipulating those passages to their own agenda. Islam, Hebrew, Cristian, and most of the other formal, mainstream religions have got to realize this one fact” GOD DID NOT INVENT RELIGION… MAN DID. And as soon as everyone on the block realizes that, we may start to see more common sense prevailing in the way these religions interact. Besides why is it that that our leaders can’t fight it out instead of sending troops. ( Rockem Sockem Congress ) Send Hillary to whip Gadaffi, or let them sit in the back like taunting snot nosed brats as real men and women are killed in the disputes of the brats ( world leaders ( polititions and priests))
        When will it all stop, I guess when the cockroaches are munching on the last human corpse.

        • Wayne937

          I can’t see why people of all faith can’t get along with each other and leave religion out of the mix. We have all kinds of religion in this country and we all, for the most part, get along with each other without killing anyone in the name of religion.

      • freddo56

        I so hope that is true….As I am not a very religious person, but believe there is a higher being that is good and just. I was raised a christian, but have many questions about ALL religions. i don’t think any ONE is better than the other, but I know what I feel, and that’s what matters to me, and my loved-ones. This so-called person personnifies the term EVIL in my book and needs to be ousted from office by any means possible. His disdain of the American worker and what we stand for, only proves to me that this usurper needs to be cast-out. Anyone that would take the money I EARN, and give it to others that lay around and do nothing for it, besides make babies, further adding to the burden, is nothing but a sorry excuse of a human-being. i work hard for the money I earn. I’ll be damned if you’re going to give it to someone that doesn’t lift a finger to help themselves, other than to MY MONEY. Piss on OBAMA, and his cronies…ALL OF THEM…

          freddo56,
          On that note I saw where the “Octomom”s doctor had his licence pulled for that little stunt!! Here we have a woman already on welfare with six kids and this wannabe Doctor inserts EIGHT embryos into her and she gives birth to all eight!!! Now we all are supporting HER AND 14 KIDS!!! They should have not only pulled his licence, they should have made HIM support ALL EIGHT OF THE KIDS HE IS RESPONSIBLE!!!

          • libertytrain

            good point, should have kept the license, monitored of course, and then he could support these kids.

    It all seems funny to me that Lybia is only one of five countries left that doesn’t have a central bank. There were seven not too long ago but Iraq & Afganastan have theirs now too. After all are we over there to help those poor people or just to make them poorer. Lybia has over a 100 tons of gold, could that be the prize? And whoever controls the money supply controls the country. Find out who the man behind the curtin really is and you’ll find your answers.

      Presently we have skirmishes such as the Gulf War of 1990 which was an experiment by the New World Order crowd to see how fast they can assemble an army in case a country does not choose to obey the dictates of the banker bosses. Of course funding for the gulf war came from borrowing money from the Fed. Wherever you hear of a limited war, or some type of political destabilization, think of the money trail. Wars are started in foreign countries, then our President goes there and gives millions of dollars of borrowed money which normally goes into the pockets of the dictators. Nowhere in our Constitution is it written that our government is to borrow money and give it away.

      • 45caliber

        Dan:

        there is also nothing in the Constitution that says we must rebuild any country after we conquere it. So why do we? That costs more than the war – particularly when they try to make it as good as ours is now.

        • s c

          45caliber, rebuilding another country (ref. WWII Germany and/or Japan) is part of spreading ‘democracy’ AT ANY COST. It is akin to spreading manure over a field that’s being prepped for planting. I can have sympathy for Japan – but not Germany.
          If FDR hadn’t farted around with manipulating us into a war with Japan [and leaving Pearl Harbor wide open to attack], things might have been different. Germany, on the other hand, while it was also ‘used and abused,’ Germans should not have let Hitler get himself into any position of power. Does no one else appreciate which ‘religious faiths’ supported Hitler?
          It could be said that both Japan and Germany were victims of a power
          that poses as a force for good, but that proof will be elusive for years to come. It is enough to be suspicious of ANY attempt to sucker America into ANY foreign war.
          ‘Democracy’ is a monumental failure, and those who push it need to be seen for the human vermin they are (regardless of race, creed, color or any other qualifier). Discern, discern, discern. THINK!

          • 45caliber

            sc:

            I don’t have sympathy for either. One of the things we are NOT told is about the Japanese treatment of prisoners. It was as bad if not worse than what Germany did. One of the things the Japanese were doing was trying to determine what level of pain a person could withstand and still function. They would operate on American prisoners without any anesthisia. When Japan surrendered several of the Japanese doctors involved in this study were upset because the American government wouldn’t allow them to finish their study. Bataan was one of the few acts that was publicized. The US decided to rebuild Japan to have an area to stage a Presence in the Far East. It was decided to play down all that they had done since the government was certain that the American people wouldn’t care of us rebuilding them.

            One man I knew (dead long years ago now) fought two campaigns in Europe and ended the war in the Pacific. He alwas stated that he hadn’t really minded fighting the Germans (despite many serious wounds on several occasions) because “they were at least human”. The Japanese, he stated, “were animals.”

    I am still waiting for some of the Liberals to give we Conservatives at least 5 solid sensible answers what Obummer has done corectly since he has been in office, and why should anyone give him a second chance. I have given many answers in my previous post why he should be impeached, or voted out of office the next election. Karolyn, I think you, or Eddie, would be good folks to try and give us 5, or more reasons, why we should vote for Obummer again since your the 2 that sticks up for him the most. List your answers #1 through #5. Start with; this is my 5 reasons what Obummer has done a good for the coutry, and should be voted back in office in 2012. I will list some of my reasons again incase you two may have fogot them.

    #1) Obummer is against drilling for oil which leads to higher gasoline prices, food prices and higher prices on all consumer goods.

    #2) Obummer giving other countries such as Brazil 2.5 billion dollars and Mexico 1.5 billion dollar to drill off shore, and telling them we will be their best customer.

    3) Obummer’s has a high umemployment rate of around 9% after 2 1/2 years in office.

    4) Obummer has spent approx. 3.7 trillion dollars since he has been in office. More than all previous presidents combined in the history of this country.

    5) Obummer not going through Congress and hiring his Czars, and avoiding background checks by Congress. Communist Van Jones was hired by Obummer without any background check.

    6) Obummer’s association with known criminals from his home town of Chicago, and sitting in a church for 20 years whose minister blasphemed the U.S.

    7) Obummer shoving the health care down our throat when 63% of the people did not want it.

    8) Obummer promised us transparency before being elected to office. We know that the health care bill was done behind closed doors, without including the Republicans. Obummer broke his promise.

    9) Obummer tried to pass the “Cap & Trade” bill. This would have resulted in an increase in energy prices anywhere from 50% to 75% more than what we are currently paying. This would have hurt the poor folks that most likely voted for him.

    10) Obummer is against using coal, nuclear and oil for producing our energy supply. This only leaves us with ethonol which is made from corn, thus driving up food prices still further as a lot of food is made from corn. When you use corn for fuel it uses up our supply of corn that could be used as food. Obummer wants to use solar and wind for power. We would not have any power on cloudy, windless days.

    I could keep going, but I will stop here. Now, Karolyn, or Eddie, it is your turn to name at least 5 good things about Obummer, and what good he has done for this country. Let’s face it folks, Obummer wants to take the cash right out of your wallets and pocketbooks. You had better thank God that Congress was too busy with the healthcare bill that they did not get time to pass the “Cap & Trade” bill. I can assure you that Obummer is not looking out for the poor working man as you might want to believe. If you believe this, I’ll sell you a bridge to Alaska. Now Karolyn, or eddie47d, it is your turn to give us good concrete reasons why Obummer is a good president, and why we should keep him in office.

    • BigBadJohn

      I read up to # 4 and quit – you are just so far off it is not even funny.
      Bush spent over 5 trillion dollars. He DOUBLED the national, debt.

      Reagan spent 3 trillion back in the 80′s. In today’s inflated dollars that would probably be closer to 9 trillion dollars. He TRIPLED the national debt.

      • Bert Cundle

        We don’t have a good example, of our past presidents! Clinton & Nixon were Close!

      • Wayne937

        BigBadJohn, You had better go back and check the facts from a more reliable website then the ones you have checked. Obummer has already ruined this country. It is going down hill, and fast. Fasten your seat belt because we are all in for a fast ride. I’ll bet a lot of people looking for jobs will agree. I’ll bet the ones filling up their gasoline tanks will agree, I’ll bet the ones who actually buys the groceries will agree that everything under Obummer has risen in price in he last 2.5 years.

      • Wayne937

        Pick out the number you disagree with and explain why you disagree. You did not give a reason why you disagree. BigBadJohn. Explain it so we Conservatives can understand what your talking about, ie, if you can logically think that well. Give us your reason why you think gasoline prices, groceries and all other consumer goods are rising in cost. If you agree that the things are rising in cost give us your reason why it is happening.

        • BigBadJohn

          “Explain it so we Conservatives can understand what your talking about”

            BigBadJohn, I guess your not going to explain it like I did. Your either too lazy to do all that typing, or you will not be able to explain it where we can understand it. Oh well! I tried.

        • BigBadJohn

          The number I think is most appropriate is that Bush inherited a 100 billion dollar deficit and the last year of his presidency it was 1.5 trillion. a FIFTEEN HUNDRED PERCENT INCREASE 1500%

          Obama inherited a 1.5 trillion dollar deficit and turned in into a 1.8 trillion dollar deficit – a 30% increase.

          What should Obama do to get the budget under control – UN-DO everything that Bush did in the first place?

          • Wayne937

            Where is your proof on this analysis? BigBadJoh, I am sure you are a very patriotic American and wish the best for your country. We both want to leave the country in good shape for our children and grandchilden. Obviously, we just have different views of looking at these things. I have sincerely tried my upmost best to explain to you the way I truly feel about where our country is heading under Obummer. You can’t seem to see where I’m coming from, and I can’t see where your coming from. I guess we at a stalemate. You at least know how I feel, and I know how you feel about Obummer Policies. One of is wrong, and one of us is right. Hopefully, time will tell the story.

      • Wayne937

        BigBadJohn, please eat your words when you said that Bush had out spent Obummer. Remember, Bush was in office for 8 years. Your Obummer has been in office for only a little over 2 years. Check out this website to see to spent the most money. http://washingtonexaminer.com/politics/2009/02/obamas-trillions-dwarf-bushs-dangerous-spending I don’t think you want to accept the truth about your president. It is sad that folks like you either don’t know the truth, or you are trying to hide the truth, and cover up for Obummer. This is wrong. It is not any wonder why people has lost respect for us. BadBadJohn, I am unlike you, I would not cover up for anyone.

    • Wayne937

      Bert, I am a Conservative Republican. I don’t like McCain either. I have never heard a Democrat saying they would never vote for a particular Democrat. There again, most Democrats will vote strictly for their own party regardless of who is running for the office. Most Conservative Republicans will vote for the best man regardless of the party. I guess you can call me a Conservative Independent. Any person who vote strictly for their own party is a fool. This is what is wrong with our country today. Would you have voted for Charlie Rangel over a Republican, had he been in your district? Would you have voted for Marion Berry over a Republican had he been in your district. I am sure you know the backgrounds of these two crooks. If not, look it up.

    Fast Facts About Dr. Charles Krauthammer , MD
    1. Born: March 13, 1950
    2. Birthplace: New York City, New York
    3. Raised in Montreal, Canada
    4. Attended Mc Gill University and Harvard Medical School
    5. 1972 diving accident left him paralyzed from the neck on down.
    6. Directed psychiatric research for the Carter administration
    7. Began writing career in 1981 with The New Republic
    8. Helped develop the “Reagan Doctrine” in the 80′s
    9. Appointed to Presidential Council on Bioethics in 2002
    Dr. Charles Krauthammer , MD

    Dr. Krauthammer is frequently on the Fox News Channel. He is an M.D., a lawyer and is paralyzed from the neck down. A friend went to hear Charles Krauthammer . He listened with 25 others in a closed room. What he says here, is NOT 2nd-hand but 1st. The ramifications are staggering for us, our children and their children.

    Last Monday was a profound evening, Dr. Charles Krauthammer spoke to the Center for the American Experiment.. He is a brilliant intellectual, seasoned & articulate. He is forthright and careful in his analysis, and never resorts to emotions or personal insults. He is NOT a fear monger nor an extremist in his comments and views . He is a fiscal conservative, and has received a Pulitzer Prize for writing. He is a frequent contributor to Fox News and writes weekly for the Washington Post.
    The entire room was held spellbound during his talk. I have summarized his comments, as we are living in uncharted waters economically and internationally.
    Even 2 Dems at my table agreed with everything he said! If you feel like forwarding this to those who are open minded and have not drunk the Kool-Aid, feel free….

    Summary of his comments:

    1. Mr. Obama is a very intellectual, charming individual. He is not to be underestimated. He is a cool customer who doesn’t show his emotions. It’s very hard to know what’s behind the mask. The taking down of the Clinton dynasty was an amazing accomplishment. The Clintons still do not understand what hit them. Obama was in the perfect place at the perfect time.

    2. Obama has political skills comparable to Reagan and Clinton . He has a way of making you think he’s on your side, agreeing with your position, while doing the opposite. Pay no attention to what he SAYS; rather, watch what he DOES!

    3. Obama has a ruthless quest for power. He did not come to Washington to make something out of himself, but rather to change everything, including dismantling capitalism. He can’t be straightforward on his ambitions, as the public would not go along. He has a heavy hand, and wants to level the playing field with income redistribution and punishment to the achievers of society. He would like to model the USA to Great Britain or Canada .

    4. His three main goals are to control ENERGY, PUBLIC EDUCATION, and NATIONAL HEALTHCARE by the Federal government. He doesn’t care about the auto or financial services industries, but got them as an early bonus. The cap and trade will add costs to everything and stifle growth. Paying for FREE college education is his goal. Most scary is his healthcare program, because if you make it FREE and add 46,000,000 people to a Medicare-type single-payer system, the costs will go through the roof. The only way to control costs is with massive RATIONING of services, like in Canada . God forbid!

    5. He has surrounded himself with mostly far-left academic types. No one around him has ever even run a candy store. But they are going to try and run the auto, financial, banking and other industries. This obviously can’t work in the long run. Obama is not a socialist; rather he’s a far-left secular progressive bent on nothing short of revolution. He ran as a moderate, but will govern from the hard left. Again, watch what he DOES, not what he says.

    6. Obama doesn’t really see himself as President of the United States , but more as a ruler over the world.. He sees himself above it all, trying to orchestrate & coordinate various countries and their agendas. He sees moral equivalency in all cultures. His apology tour in Germany and England was a prime example of how he sees America , as an imperialist nation that has been arrogant, rather than a great noble nation that has at times made errors. This is the first President ever who has chastised our allies and appeased our enemies!

    7. He is now handing out goodies. He hopes that the bill (and pain) will not come due until after he is reelected in 2012. He would like to blame all problems on Bush from the past, and hopefully his successor in the future. He has a huge ego, and Dr. Krauthammer believes he is a narcissist.

    8.. Republicans are in the wilderness for a while, but will emerge strong. Republicans are pining for another Reagan , but there will never be another like him. Krauthammer believes Mitt Romney, Tim Pawlenty & Bobby Jindahl (except for his terrible speech in February) are the future of the party. Newt Gingrich is brilliant, but has baggage. Sarah Palin is sincere and intelligent, but needs to really be seriously boning up on facts and info if she is to be a serious candidate in the future… We need to return to the party of lower taxes, smaller government, personal responsibility, strong national defense, and state’s rights.

    9. The current level of spending is irresponsible and outrageous. We are spending trillions that we don’t have.. This could lead to hyperinflation, depression or worse. No country has ever spent themselves into prosperity. The Media is giving Obama, Reid and Pelosi a Pass because they love their agenda. But eventually the bill will come due and people will realize the huge bailouts didn’t work, nor will the stimulus package. These were trillion-dollar payoffs to Obama’s allies, unions and the Congress to placate the left, so he can get support for #4 above.

    10. The election was over in mid-September when Lehman brothers failed, fear and panic swept in, we had an unpopular President, and the war was grinding on indefinitely without a clear outcome. The people are in pain, and the mantra of change caused people to act emotionally. Any Dem would have won this election; it was surprising it was as close as it was.

    11. In 2012, if the unemployment rate is over 10%, Republicans will be swept back into power. If it’s under 8%, the Dems continue to roll. If it’s between 8-10%, it will be a dogfight. It will all be about the economy. I hope this gets you really thinking about what’s happening in Washington and Congress. There is a left-wing revolution going on, according to Krauthammer, and he encourages us to keep the faith and join the loyal resistance. The work will be hard, but we’re right on most issues and can reclaim our country, before it’s far too late.
    Do yourself a long term favor, send this to all who will listen to an intelligent assessment of the big picture. All our futures and children’s futures depend on our good understanding of what is really going on in DC, and our action pursuant to that understanding!! It really IS up to each of us to take individual action!! Start with educating your friends and neighbors!!!

      Thanks for that I’m sending it on to everyone on my email list.And probably my congressmen also.

  • Dan az

    The fact that MC Lameo would continue this treasonist act on another country says allot about his prior goals as dictator.
    The constitutional powers of the President as Commander-in-Chief to introduce United States Armed Forces into hostilities, or into situations where imminent involvement in hostilities is clearly indicated by the circumstances, are exercised only pursuant to

    (1) a declaration of war,

    (2) specific statutory authorization, or

    (3) a national emergency created by attack upon the United States, its territories or possessions, or its armed forces.
    We need to get out of the UN and start abiding by our constitution as our supreme law.What part of this is so hard to understand?

    • Wayne937

      Dan, it’s too bad that Congress does not have the guts, or will power, to uphold the Constitution, or their own war powers they have established over the years. This is why the Democrats has to go.

      • Dan az

        Wayne
        What amazes me is how we let this go on for so long.

    • 45caliber

      Dan:

      I agree.

  • Bruce

    The Point is you should all be on the phone, email and Fax’s to your congress rep and tell them to get us the hell out of all the middle east NOW. Forget the rest of the BS.

    • Wayne937

      Bruce, do you think they would listen? I have written my Democratic Senator, Bob Casey, a number of times and all I ever get back are form letters, nothing of a personal note. Maybe we don’t have enough people being effected yet.

  • SKYSKIERS

    PROVING THE QUALIFICATIONS AND ELIGIBILITY OF OUR
    PRESIDENT IS DEFENDING OUR CONSTITUTION!

    THERE IS A SILVER BULLET SOLUTION!

    One constantly hears the phrase “WE DON’T HAVE A SILVER BULLET” to fix the high gas prices, the poor sales in the housing markets, or the economy in general, from Obama and his talking heads in his
    administration.

    I’m a PACC (Patriot American Christian Conservative) and As a PACC, I’d like to point out a “SILVER BULLET SOLUTION” is in our grasp.

    There is no issue as important to every American as their own
    actual, physical safety and wellbeing!

    How safe would any citizen feel if they knew absolutely for certain that the leader or president of their nation; was an illegal alien, and possibly an enemy agent for a foreign government.
    How could any American TRUST such a leader? How could any American feel safe with such a leader?
    Such a leader(an illegal alien)would be a proven LIAR! Such a leader would be a FRAUD. Such a leader would be a criminal!

    SUCH A LEADER WOULD BE INELIGIBLE TO BE PRESIDENT!

    SUCH A LEADER WOULD NOT LEGALLY BE OUR PRESIDENT!!!!

    OBAMACARE WOULD INSTANTLY NOT BE LEGAL, BECAUSE IT WAS SIGNED BY AN ILLEGAL ALIEN!

    THE LAST TWO SUPREME COURT JUSTICES, APPOINTED BY THIS SAME ILLEGAL ALIEN WOULD IMMEDIATELY LOSE THEIR JOBS.

    THE ATTEMPT OF BANNING AMERICANS FROM HAVING AND POSSESSING FIREARMS, BY THE ABUSE OF EXECUTIVE AUTHORITY, WOULD IMMEDIATELY CEASE!

    THE ATTEMPT OF GRANTING AMNESTY AND UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE, PLUS WELFARE (AND VOTING-RIGHTS)TO 15 MILLION ILLEGAL ALIENS; THROUGH THE ABUSE OF EXECUTIVE AUTHORITY WOULD CEASE!

    THE EPA WOULD LOSE IT’S AUTHORITY TO TAX YOU WHEN YOU BREATH, BY EXHALING CARBON DIOXIDE OR RECTALLY EXPELLING GAS. THIS WOULD IMMEDIATELY KILL THE CAP N TRADE FRAUD THAT IS BEING USED TO SKYROCKET THE COST OF AMERICA’S ELECTRICAL SUPPLY!

    ALL OF THE ILLEGAL ALIEN’S CZARS (30-60)WOULD IMMEDIATELY LOSE THEIR JOBS!

    IN FACT EVERY BILL, SIGNED INTO LAW BY THIS ILLEGAL ALIEN CRIMINAL PRESIDENT WOULD IMMEDIATELY BE AS ILLEGAL AS OBAMA IS!

    Even after Obama loses the next election, there will still be liberal democRATS in our congress who will fight tooth and nail to stop the repeal of OBAMACARE AND ALL OF THE OTHER SOCIALIST-COMMUNIST POLICIES THAT THE DEMOCRATS HAVE SUCCEEDED IN RAMMING DOWN THE THROATS OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE!

    IT WILL TAKE YEARS (BY THE TEA PARTY PATRIOTS IN CONGRESS) AND BILLIONS OF DOLLARS, TO UNDO THE DAMAGE THAT THE DEMOCRATS HAVE SUCCEEDED IN DOING IN JUST THESE LAST TWO!

    BUT WITH OBAMA REVEALED AS A FRAUD AND AN ILLEGAL ALIEN, WHO WAS AIDED AND ABETTED, BY THE DEMOCRATS & THE LIBERAL NET-WORK-NEWS; THERE WILL BE SUCH A PUBLIC OUTRAGE DIRECTED AT THE PEOPLE WHO ALLOWED THIS DANGEROUS FRAUD TO HAPPEN, THAT OBAMA WILL BE FORCED TO RESIGN; OR THE DEMOCRATS WILL BE FORCED TO IMPEACH OBAMA TO SAVE THEIR OWN JOBS!

    WE PACC’S HAVE A SILVER BULLET SOLUTION IN OUR GRASP.
    WE ONLY NEED THE COURAGE TO USE IT!!!!

    WHAT IS THE “SILVER BULLET SOLUTION” YOU MIGHT ASK?

    USE ALL AVAILABLE SPEED & RESOURCES TO PROVE THAT THE
    CURRENT OCCUPANT OF THE WHITE HOUSE IS AN ILLEGAL ALIEN!
    AND THEN FIRE HIM AND JAIL HIM ALONG WITH THOSE WHO MADE
    THIS FRAUD/TREASON POSSIBLE!

    • JC

      Amen “ALL” of that!

  • Monte Stamper

    MCCAIN, SURE MUST KNOW BECAUSE HE IS A SENATOR. I THOUGHT I WOULD NEVER SAY THIS, BUT I THINK WE ARE BETTER OFF WITH OBUMMER THAN WE WOULD HAVE BEEN WITH MCCAIN. AT LEAST OBUMMER SHOWED HIS SOCIALIST BENT RIGHT UP FRONT. MCCAIN, WHO SHOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN THE REPUBLICAN CHALLENGER, WAS HEADING US IN THE SAME DIRECTION, JUST DOING IT MORE SUBTLY.

  • 45caliber

    The war is illegal since we are NOT an arm of the UN. We are a seperate nation. We can only go to war legally IF Congress votes for it – and no vote was asked for or taken prior to us engaging. Further, no money has been appropriated to cover the costs involved. As far as I have been able to tell, we’ve done very little good. So why are we still there? At least it seems that Congress isn’t willing to bow down and do as he insists. We’ll see…

  • i41

    Wayne, big bad john, is just another overloaded alligator mouthed loving marxist/communist libatard with a disfunctional carnary azz that is sucking air. Democrat are functionally mental midgets who do every thing corrupt and that is harmful to the USA and still are.
    everyone got a first hand experience when they have a super majoriity with a crossbred kenyian muslim in the WH. I notice there isn’t a marxist/communist democrat who will defend their alligance to Nazi Traitor George Soros and why they embrace marxist/communist ideals so tightly, even when they claim to be freedom loving Americans. But then one of the major requirements to be a dumbocrap is admire and emulate the cumpulise lying mandate to be a gold plate liberal leader.

    • Wayne937

      Thanks, i41. Your about the only one to jump in and agree with me. I was wondering if there was anyone else who would agree with me. I just call it the way I see it.

  • http://PersonalLibertyDigest Confoundme once but not twice

    Call it anyway you SEE it…but what do you PLAN to DO about What you are Calling, Wayne 937 ? >> And One thing, JOE H. You are ‘peeing up the wrong tree. GWB Did NOT get a “”Legitimate Appraisal of The Facts Pertaining to Iraq and >>Afganistan…and a true need to Pull a WAR on Them… Congress ( Outside of a Very FEW Go-Alongs ) was Fed A bunch of lies That were Manufactured Up to Use..for the purpose of “Doing a Middle EAST WAR . NO, THERE was nothing Legitimate about Any of it. That means ..WE were Lied to and Manipulated into this very position NOW that we were Led into By GWB for hIS own purpose. Don`t make a bigger fool of yourself than you already have…by Making such asinine Remarks as you Did..again. THINK What kind of people are being made Wealthy off this “Endless WAR’ These People have invented ! Make your List And GO after THEM ! Instead of Throwing Dumb remarks out here…For more People to Read… Think First ! I have enough sense to know I am not In the KNOW ..Like YOU ? are!

    • Wayne937

      Your comment is not worth commenting on, Confoundme. Go and fly a kite, and keep your nonsense to yourslf. You will not get anymore response from me.

    Senator McCain is trying to get brownie points again by critcizing the Liar In Chief for another screw job in Libya.

  • http://personalliberty.com Tattoomama

    Idiot mccain–we shouldn’t have been involved in Libya in the first place! What part of “IT WASN’T OUR BUSINESS” does he not understand?! What a horse’s a$$ . . .

  • http://personalliberty.com Tattoomama

    Nor should we have become involved in Iraq, Afghanistan, or anywhere else in that armpit of the world. BRING OUR BOYS AND GIRLS IN UNIFORM HOME NOW!!!!!!!!

  • Tim

    On this issue of Libya. This is something that is one cock up. Gaddaffi has been a horror to his country. He and his henchmen needed to be shifted from power along time back. However the moment for intervention was clear and weeks before Obama joined the war party. After that moment USA should not have got involved. The initial momentum and surprise had immense strategic value to the rebels, this had been lost well before the time Obama got moving. It is now a slogging match and weapons have vanished into the desert and they will turn up being used against USA.
